What are the stages of the life cycle of an owl?
The female owl lays a clutch of eggs and can lay anywhere from one to 13 eggs depending on the owl species. Most owls will lay two to five eggs.
The eggs hatch after about 35 days, and baby owl is called an owlet. Once the owl is six to eight weeks old, they begin to leave their nest but they still cannot fly, they’re known as fledgings. The period where they leave the next until they can fly.
In another three weeks, the owls learn to fly and will grow into an adult.

How to print your worksheet
I have the HP printer 8710 but it’s not available anymore. It’s still running well for years now. Look for another HP Instant Ink ready printer so that you can use their program to send you ink cartridges whenever your printer gets low on ink.

You can print out the pictures and labels onto index cards and mix them up and have your child match them together or write out what they learned about each stage on the cards.
Recommended Owl Craft Kits for Kids
If you want more activities that have to do with owls, these craft kits from Etsy are an awesome way to get kids busy and learning at the same time.
The first one is an owl stuffie maker kit that’s best for your child’s first sewing experience. The other one is a lovely owl craft kit where kids can make their own owl craft using wooden owl shapes and decoupage papers.
The owl life cycle worksheets come with a cut and paste version for young kids who are not writing as well yet. And one that your child can label and write in the labels themselves for older kids.
To extend this activity, go on a nature walk and see if you can spot any owls. The best time to spot them is at dawn or dusk since most owls are nocturnal. Add in your favorite owl books, and visit a bird sanctuary to see if they have any owls.
We were able to see a birds of prey nature show at our camp grounds in the summer which was an amazing experience for the kids. They brought out different birds of prey for the kids to see up close which was neat.
Owls are harder to spot than other birds, but you can also install bird feeders in your backyard to see if you can attract other birds to your yard in the summer.
